This week we asked you, our guests and friends, to tell us what Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill mean to you. Everyone who told us their story was entered to win a $50 gift card to our restaurants, and we were overwhelmed with the amazing response! We care deeply about the experience you get when joining us for a meal, from the greeting you get when you walk in the door all the way to your dessert, so it’s very important to us to hear from you about your personal experiences. A big thank you to all who entered and shared with us!

We will be sharing more of these stories in the coming weeks, but today are sharing thoughts from our two winners. Lisa had the following to say about what Copper Canyon Grill means to her:

“Dining at Copper Canyon has become a weekly family ritual, where we create memories, share stories and experience the love of friends and family. The servers have even become our extended family that share in our happy time together.”

We love hearing that our family has become part of Lisa’s family. Amanda had similar thoughts about Stanford Grill:

“Stanford Grill in Columbia was the first place in MD that felt like ‘our place’. We started going as an engaged couple. We have celebrated every major milestone in those walls-marriage, jobs, friends, babies, birthdays, date nights…It was the first place we took our new born son, the place we always recommend, and continues to be our first choice for every get together. Thank you for creating such a fantastic atmosphere, and for giving us a ‘place’.”

Again, thank you to everyone who entered and shared with us! We’re thankful to be part of your story!

Coca Cola BBQ Ribs & Sea Scallops

This week at Copper Canyon Grill, we are running two fan favorite features! You may just have to visit both locations to try both…mini roadtrip, anyone?Coca Cola BBQ Beef Ribs feature

At Gaithersburg, we couldn’t help but feature our Coca Cola BBQ Ribs. These ribs are very popular among our guests, and you’ll see why at first bite! With a house-made blend of spices used as a dry rub before adding Coca Cola-infused barbeque sauce, these mouth-watering ribs are then braised low and slow until they are falling off the bone. Tangy and sweet, smoky and saucey; these ribs can not be missed. Sip your favorite beer, or perhaps even an ice cold cola alongside, and settle in for a relaxing evening. Join us until Sunday at Gaithersburg only to try a plate!

SeaScallops feature

At Copper Canyon Grill, we are passionate about creating dishes that are as nutritious and fresh‬ as they are delicious. This week at SilverSpring ‬we are featuring a dish that displays this perfectly: Sea Scallops with Cous Cous. The stars of this entree are the scallops, which are caught off the coast of Massachusetts‬ and flown in to Copper Canyon daily. Paired with cous cous, roasted cauiliflower, asparagus, and a light lemon butter sauce, this entree is both light and intensely flavorful. Come see for yourself! Available at Silver Spring until Sunday!

A Trip Down Memory Lane with Chef Michael: This Week’s Features

Housemade Meatballs with Garlic Bread

This week at Gaithersburg, Chef Michael is recreating a childhood memory. We all have a dish that goes hand-in-hand with our childhood; one that we remember waiting for every week. Maybe that was your grandma’s cinnamon rolls, or your dad’s chili, or your aunt’s peach cobbler. For Chef Michael, it was Sundays when his mom prepared “the Best Meatballs in the World,” which he has recreated for you in this week’s special at Gaithersburg! Try his Housemade Meatballs with Garlic Bread this week, available until Sunday, and you just might be reminded of the dishes you loved as a child, too.

“As kids we were so excited for Sunday mornings. We knew Mom was in the kitchen all day cooking a special treat for the whole family. We waited all week in anticipation for the best meatballs in the world. We would gather around the dinner table with a large bowl of meatballs in tomato sauce and of course, it had to be accompanied by garlic bread. She used such great ingredients like Italian Sausage, Ground Turkey, Pecorino Romano and Extra Virgin Olive Oil which all complemented each other beautifully. I wanted to share this special family recipe with my extended Copper Canyon Grill family for everyone to enjoy. We are featuring this dish at Gaithersburg all week so come on in and join us.”

If you missed it at Copper Canyon last week, you have another chance to try Chef Michael’s delicious Rib Eye Steak with Potato au Gratin! Sometimes there is nothing like a classic steak-and-potatoes dish—especially when Chef Michael puts his spin on it. With housemade steak sauce, perfectly cut meat, and potatoes set off with heavenly parmesan cheese and heavy cream, this is comfort food at its finest. Available at Stanford Grill until Sunday only!

Treat your Valentine to an evening they won’t forget at your favorite restaurant! To add to the romance, the first 200 guests at the Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, and Woodmore locations will receive a lovely long-stemmed rose. Make your reservations now by clicking your desired location:
